This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls)
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

Player Comments:

  • "1st 3 games played outdoor, interrupted by the rain with Seb about to serve at 2-1 having just lost my serve on a double fault. Rescheduled and completed indoor. The much faster playing surface suited me more and that's what made the difference because we were well matched. Definitely would love to play Seb again."  -- Thierry

Player Comments:

  • "It was the shoes wot done it! Arrived at Ladywell for the third league match between us to discover thick frost across the courts! A cautious knock-up revealed the surface to be playable. Jonathan won the previous match fairly easily, but this time Angus had brand new, unworn Karrimoor cross-country trainers with outstanding grip. That, literally, was the difference. One nil to the shoes. And, yes, it was FREEZING out there! These super-bouncy Vermont tennis balls were like bean bags. "  -- Angus

Reveal CommentAndrew Lilley bt Angus Bearn (Dec 3) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "The match was played on a wet and slippery surface that meant it was very difficult to move about on. The match was won mainly on the difference in unforced errors as shot for shot Angus matched me for ground strokes had some great trick shots and well placed slices. Thanks for the game !"  -- Andrew

Reveal CommentAngus Bearn bt Marcel Heinrichs (Nov 14) 6-4, 2-6, 7-5

Player Comments:

  • "Exhausting match in the dazzling winter sun. The light caused all sorts of problems with many wild shots, though Marcel retained the superior concentration. Angus capitulated at five down in third set only to be told by Marcel it was deuce, not match! From there it was scramble over the line. Nothing in it, for sure, with an equal number of games won. Now, where did I put those sunglasses?"  -- Angus
Reveal CommentAngus Bearn bt Paul Merry (Nov 3) 6-2, 6-3

Player Comments:

  • "An intriguing match on the damp and ill-maintained surface at Hornfair Park. Paul's primary weapons were superior: a flashing serve, potent forehand drive, and carefully placed backhand. However, the occasional inaccuracy diminshed the effects of these winning shots at key moments, leaving a flattering score for Angus . "  -- Angus
